not expect. jon huntsman said in may he would not self-finance his presidential campaign even though he's rich enough to do that, at least in large part. today he didn't have to file any campaign fund-raising information, because he hasn't been declared for very long, but did say he raised about $4 million and his campaign would just say that he did contribute to his own coffering here. all they'll say, it wasn't a majority. only that what he gave is less than half. jon huntsman is, at least, sort of self-financing here and declaring it, and letting it be known. is that worrying in terms of his chances as a real candidate or encouraging because he has his own money to spend if he wants to? >> first of all, i don't understand the original statement. don't make a statement that you know can be disproved when the sec reports come out. and in terms of his fund-raising, i'm inclined to say, wait until the next cycle. i mean, jon huntsman has only been around for a little bit. i think his opening is that republicans who are not bachmann republicans decide that in the end he might have a bette

are glad to see him come. >>> next up, where is the loyalty? a one-time chief of staff to jon huntsman has passed over his former boss and endorsed mitt romney. his reasoning -- he's uniquely positioned to beat barack obama. he broke the news it was a little awkward. >>> speaking of awkward, it was just personal. apparently in new jersey last week governor chris christie used his line-item veto to strike funding for certainly health and social programs. the reaction from steve sweeney -- i wanted to punch him in his head. you know who he reminds me you have? mr. potter from "it's a wonderful life." that's what senator convenery called him. they're a longtime bipartisan allies. they put out a statement yesterday while saying wheel sweeney's comments were disrespectful, christie stands ready to work with him going forward. >>> the number of women in congress dropped for the first time in 30 years. whatever reason, the new york rising star, senator kirsten jill brand wants to reverse that trend. she joints us next. you're watching "hardball," only on msnbc. >> he was a good-looking guy before
, let's end it with humor courtesy of jon stewart who offered the special take on a serious candidate tim pawlenty campaign. let's watch. >> well, let's see where governor tim pawlenty is. he has $4.5 million raised this quarter, but he struggles against the perception that he is -- former minnesota governor tim pawlenty kicked off three weeks of barnstorming in the anticipated fox straw poll with a warning that iowans should not waste their support on charismatic candidates who cannot win. >> ooh, tim pawlenty taking a bold stand against charisma.

. tim pawlenty expected to bring in less than 5 million. jon huntsman raised a little over 2 million throwing his own money at 4 million. ron paul told supporters he's raised over $4 million. the number though everybody is watching what will the michele bachmann number be? she can transfer money from the house campaign. was she able to get in the internet and direct mail money in in time? will the number be forth of 5 million? will it be north of 10? that would be somewhat of a surprise. meanwhile, a siren for the supporters of rick perry, he's scouting out a vendor pot at the straw poll. it's our understanding perry won't get into the race until after he has the national day of prayer on august 6th. the straw poll is basically a week later. he wouldn't get in before then bupt the straw poll could be a way to see if that's the launching point and he gets in sometime in late august in time for those three debates that mitt romney and company are competing in in september. meanwhile, though there are no firm numbers yet, we're expecting a big quarter from team obama. fundraisers are pr

are really embracing it as a way to draw others out. for instance, jon huntsman who is struggling in the polls now is really trying to use this as a referendum on mitt romney's leadership. not necessarily coming out saying he backed boehner's planning saying it's in the right direction, that he agrees that there should be no tax revenue and no tax hikes. so he's really trying to land some hits on romney in this instance. and, of course, all of them are using this to really make this argument that barack obama hasn't led, that he has no plan of his own, and that he is really a big spending liberal who has really presided over this massive increase in spending and deficit spending. >> right. so with the president's overall approval rating hitting a new low, it's now just 40%, do you think this debate helps or hurts the president in 2012? if everything gets done and over with here and we have an end of the summer sort of the heat and rhetoric all calms down, will this be a factor this time next year? >> i think it will definitely come up again. on the one hand, you're going to have r

for millions of unemployed americans. >> meanwhile jon huntsman is participating in the iowa primary and he gave a pretty clear reason why at a campaign event in florida. >> i come to find that if you own the i-4 corridor you own florida. and if you own florida, you own the presidency. >> he also called the $14 trillion debt a cancer growing in this country that needs to be read ated and cut out. we want to invite you to watch meet if press this morning. guests tim pawlenty. david will be joined by treasury secretary tim geithner. that's this morning on "meet the press." >>> a report this morning in "the new york times" says the u.s. may suspend military aid to pakistan as defense secretary leon panetta visits afghanistan, the paper reports the possible halt of $800 million in assistance and equipment. that could have an effect on u.s. troops in afghanistan. the report says the aid could resume if pakistan takes tougher action against the taliban as well as al qaeda. meanwhile, secretary panetta told reporters on the plane it's time to focus on defeating al qaeda once and for all. >> i thin
. i'm jon haber of alto music. i've been around music my entire life. this is the first alto music i opened when i was 24. my business is all about getting music into people's hands. letting someone discover how great music is, is just an awesome thing. and the plum card from american express open helps me do that. i use it for as much inventory as i possibly can. from picks...to maracas... to drums... to dj equipment... you name it, i can buy it. and the savings that we get from the early pay discount on those purchases has given us money to reinvest back into our business and help quadruple the size of our floor space. and the more we expand, the more space we have for instruments and musicians to come play them. rock n roll will never die. how can the plum card's trade terms get your business booming? booming is putting more music in more people's hands. didn't taste so vegetably? well, v8 v-fusion juice gives you a full serving of vegetables, plus a full serving of fruit. but it just tastes like fruit. and try our deliciously refreshing v8 v-fusion + tea. but it just tastes like

, that is where the numbers fall right off of a cliff. tim pawlenty, and ron paul, and jon huntsman all coming in under $5 million. pawlenty in fact is seeing the fund-raising numbers closer to herman cain's than mitt comeny's, but newt gingrich is going in the wrong direction, because he is reported to be $1 million in debt. and as for barack obama, they are saying that his is certain to meet the goals when the forms are filed next week. obama officials say they have nearly 500,000 individual donors give this quarter which is nearly five times the number that the bush/cheney re-election bid began with in 2003. now, into the money chase with "huffington post" social impact reporter, and analyst alex wagner. alex, the republicanings knew they would be outspent by president obama, and are they prepared to be this outspent by obama? >> no, this is not good news. that internal memo, romney had set a $50 million goal, and the fact that she is not meeting the 2007 numbers is ugly, and you compare it with the fact that there are predictions that the obama campaign will make $1 billion in fund-raising
tim pawlenty and jon huntsman are barely hanging on. and newt gingrich's campaign is on life support. so is this it? or is michele bachmann emerging as the tea party's battering ram against the willard mitt romney? joining me now is richard wolfe and with me, editor at large for salon.com, joan walsh. let me ask you first. is the bachmann threat a real threat, richard? >> well, she is a threat herself to mitt romney. but i actually think the space that she represents is more of a threat. look, she needs to call donald trump to figure out how this movie ends. can you rise very quickly on this kind of platform and then you sink very quickly. but what she is showing and what trump showed before her is that there is space for a populist insurgeant type of tea party candidate who can capture the spirit driving the base here. i personally don't think it will be her. i think it is going to be someone like rick perry or sarah palin but she is peaking too early. the one thing you don't do is too early in the summer before. >> are they waiting joan for another tea party hero to come from the w
trouble, jon, having that urge to ridicule again? >> yeah, presidential candidate's husbands trying to cure gay people while -- >> uh-huh. okay. >> wow. okay. ah -- i'm coming in. >> oh, really? >> you need to get it out. what's your body wanting you to say? >> i don't know. something like -- he's so gay, he calls "top gun "that he volleyball movie. oh, my god! wow. >> no. no. >> aren't you -- aren't you -- ever tempted by this stuff? >> of course, i'd love to say, dr. marcus bachmann buys brawny towels for the packaging. i have that in me. >> i know. >> so gay, richard simmons tells him to tone it down. >> any [ bleep ] -- >> oh, no! no. >> interesting area they're working here. anyway, speak of bachmann, she may need brush up on her yiddish. specifically, pronunciation of chutzpah. >> the president doesn't want to the confronted with spending. he has a lot of chutzpah. he spent trillions on the stimulus. it failed. >> that's right up with her history. >>> finally, good-bye and good luck to the producer of "hardball" all these years. she's done great work day in and day out. sorry
. it had dropped to 4.5%. during that same period of time you had 7 to 8 mill jon jobs created in the united states of america, so the bush tax cuts did exactly what they were supposed to do. unfortunately everything went awry when nancy pelosi took over the house of representatives with her philosophy of government and senator harry reid took over the suns senate, and with the threats that those two and their philosophies posed to the job creators in america, you saw our unemployment immediately start to go the wrong direction, but the facts are there, look at the department of labor statistics. >> sir, sir, i need to get to the -- >> the deficit declined during this same period of time. >> i need to get to the debt ceiling. the fact is those tax cuts are still in place, so the fact that anyone got in office didn't change the tax code at all, which is not the statement you made. >> in january of 2007. >> so the fact that congress changed has nothing to do with the tax cuts, they're still in play and unemployment is 9.2, so we can have different opinions, we can't have differen
boehnor, eric canton, mitch mcconnell, jon kyl, collectively they passed 19 votes during the bush administration to raise the debt ceiling, just those four guys. raising the debt ceiling is not something that usually has a big fight over it. sometimes it does, sometimes part of congress tries to leverage this vote because it's something that absolutely has to pass. in the same way crafty politicians will sometimes attach unrelated things to the pentagon budget because the pentagon budget everybody agrees has to pass, in that same way, politicians in the past tried to attach things to the debt ceilings. they not only failed, they so misunderstood the dynamics of their own party, john boehnor is so bad at his job, a political pundit at 9:00 p.m. on nbc, using this as a metaphor of what just happened to them. the breeze helps, i think. republicans blew it. they totally, utterly, 100% blew it, and today they had to essentially surrender. >> republicans senate leader mitch mcconnell presented. >> after weeks and months of fighting about it, senate republicans today proposed allowing pr

for next year? >> yes. and i think it was jon stewart who said upon seeing a picture of john boehner recently that he looked like the world's saddest tangerine. but, yeah. i mean, this exposes john boehner's weakness. political weakness. this is what he wanted for years, to be the speaker. he got the speakership because of the tidal wave of tea party people coming in. but be careful what you wish for. now he can't govern that majority. and he's downstairs here, and we are all standing around waiting to see what happens pleading with people to try to get the votes he needs. and he is short. according to the people i have talked to, he's short. it's humiliating. and i think he will be challenged sometime soon, no matter what happens on this vote. >>> thank you both so much for joining me tonight. >>> coming up -- the republicans say they want deficit reduction. what they really mean is government reduction. ezra klein joins me. >>> and an epic battle between tea partiers and hobbits is raging. inside the mind of one u.s. senator, john mccain.
